Vacuum coffee brewer has two mixing units: the lower and upper pot. The upper pot is directly placed on top of the lower pot and these two units are sealed together by the use of a stopper.

A tube and a filter are attached to the pot on top and the tube hangs and flanked by the two pots.

When the water in lower pot is at boiling point, place the upper pot and seal it. The water will rise through the tube hanging due to the increasing pressure in the lower pot.

With this, the brewing process will start. The coffee and water will mix and be left for around 3 to 4 minutes.

Next, remove the coffee maker from heat. The cooling process will then cause a vacuum in the lower pot and the water will be filtered going down to the said pot.

As the water goes down, nearly all the coffee grounds are filtered. After this, you can now use the lower pot to serve the coffee.
